“Thanks a bunch for helping out Chihiro-chan, Ayanokōji-kun.”
“No, I’m sure you guys would’ve found her eventually. There’s no need to thank me.”
“No need to thank you? She could’ve gotten injured if she had gone much further, not to mention how much harder it would’ve been for us to track her down.”
